Wladimir Klitschko Will Grab Pianeta For Sparring Help
By Ruslan Chikov
According to heavyweight Francesco Pianeta (26-0-1, 14KOs), he will travel to the Austrian village of Going to serve as a sparring partner for WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. The Ukrainian beltholder is scheduled to defend his titles in a July 7 rematch with American Tony Thompson. Pianeta is very happy to receive the opportunity to work with Wladimir. Two years ago, Francesco had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor, and last month he defeated veteran and former champion Oliver McCall.
